of an international community effort to support the stability and success of a united ukraine going forward, which is not only in the interest of the people of the ukraine and the international community but also in russia interests. however, we are now deeply concerned of reports of military movements taken by the russian federation inside the ukraine. russia has a historic relationship with the ukraine, including cultural and economic ties and a military facility in crimea, but any violation of the ukraine sovereignty and territorial integrity would be deeply destabilizing, which is not in the interest of the ukraine, russia, or europe. it would represent a profound interference in matters that must be determined by the ukrainian people. it would be a clear violation of russia's commitment to respect the independence and sovereignty and the borders of the ukraine and international laws. just days after the world came to russia for the olympic games, it would invite the condemnation of nations around the world, and the united states will stand with the international community in affirming there w

not to violate ukraine's sovereignty. >> would represent a profound interference in matters that mist be determined by the ukrainian people. it would be a clear violation of the commitment to the borders of ukraine and international loss. >> president obama spoke with russian president vladimir putin. other administration officials have been in contact with their russian counterparts to urge them to support the stability and success of a united ukraine going forward. some republicans say putin doesn't think much of president obama's words, especially dealing with a strategically important country like ukraine. >> the ukraine is a major country in central europe. it's got nearly 50 million people. it's a big space between nato and russia. it's got enormous economic potential. if it tips back into russia's orbit, the hand writing is on the wall for the other formal republics of the soviet union. the lesson america's weakness is becoming pervasive will spread worldwide. putin holds all the high cards and all we have to offer from president obama is rhetoric. >> john boehner says the obam

to moscow. >> any violation of ukraine's sovereignty and territorial integrity would be deeply destabilizing and indeed the united states will stand with the international community in affirming there will be cost force any military intervention in ukraine. >> considering a boycott of june's summit in sochi. that would be a serious diplomatic affront to the kremlin. they reject all allegations. there could be no question of a military intervention says moscow's ambassador to the u.n. >> of course as you know we have an agreement with ukraine on the presence of the russian black sea fleet or the base and we're acting within the framework of that agreement. >> the ukrainian government sees things differently. it fears losing control especially since the local autmuss government is now appealing to russia to intervene. >> recognizing my responsibility for the lives and the security of the people, i ask russian president putin to offer assistance in providing peace and order in the territory of the autmuss republic. >> so at the moment all signs point to confrontation. the ukrainian government h
with the international immunity in affirming that there will be costs for any military intervention in the ukraine. >> obama is considering a boycott of the g8 summit in sochi. it is unlikely that such gestures will discourage the russian government from its course in the crimean government. all signs point to confrontation. the ukrainian government has placed the troops on high alert. it emphasizes that it will not bow to provocation from russia. >> we are going to go live now to our correspondent in moscow. putin says he still making up his mind. they have approved the troops. this is more than a show of strength. >> it does seem like more than that, actually. experts have been telling us that it is not like that. he is just around the corner. he wants to take time and put pressure on the ukraine to see how they react to this. his spokesperson came out one hour ago and said he is now closely looking at the nouation, which also has reason for panic yet. increased the stake in the war of nerves and will get serious. hardly anybody has doubts about that now. is a difficultin position. he has to app
